Jessica Curry's She Who takes two texts written by American feminist poet Judy Grahn and fuses them into a compelling and innovative 15-minute choral work for SSAATTBB voices.
The piece has been written at a time where women are questioning the world they have been told to accept, reconsidering history and community, and celebrating the power of the female. Simultaneously, young people’s voices are emerging as the most powerful, positive force for change in global politics. She Who begins as a fraught conversation between men and women, and blossoms into a celebration of the diverse, beautiful, collective voice.
Commissioned by the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain for the PRS Foundation’s New Music Biennial 2019, it is recorded by them with conductor Ben Parry on the NMC label.
